Nimfa-Jan, a journalist with the magazine Details, based in Jos, Plateau State, was killed in Kafanchan, Kaduna State, during ethnic clashes.

Nigerian journalists, quoting local residents, said that Nimfa-Jan's corpse was found with arrows protruding from its back. Suspicions were apparently high that Hausas had killed him.
